House Approves Move to Outlaw Flag Burning

Yahoo News reports that the House has voted to approve a constitutional ammendment that would make the act of burning an American flag illegal.

It appears that the vote in the Senate will be close. Like the push for a gay marriage ammendment, if this were to pass, I believe it'd be the second time that the constititution was ammended to limit personal rights. The first being prohibition.

In protest against Congress' passage of the ammendment, I've decided to re-post a piece that I made a while ago... Now, the questions remains... would this video be illegal if the ammendment were to pass?

An ammendement that outlaws desicration of the flag? Great, does this mean my neighbor down the street will go to federal prison for leaving his flag out for so long that it has been bleached white from the sun?
